Funny or Die Releases Teaser Trailer for 'iSteve'

Last month, comedy site Funny or Die announced that it will be releasing iSteve, a 60-75 minute movie based on the life of Steve Jobs, on April 15. The film stars Justin Long, who gained fame among Apple fans for playing the role of "Mac" in the popular "Get a Mac" advertising campaign, in the role of Jobs.

With less than two weeks to go before the film's debut, Funny or Die has now released a teaser trailer for iSteve. The 90-second trailer offers only a brief glimpse of Long as Jobs, instead opting for a focus on audio clips from the film.

iSteve is just one of three films focusing on Steve Jobs due for release, with Ashton Kutcher's Jobs having premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January but experiencing a delayed public release and Aaron Sorkin's Sony-backed film drawing on material from Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Jobs yet to begin production.

The comments are hysterical. As if this was a big budget theatrical release.

It's a funny or die movie. Perspective people.

Yeah... the trailer comes across as over-the-top drama that takes itself too seriously. That's the point.

What this means is that.... if you (the reader) are unable to see where the parody is, the film is a parody of you.

From what I've seen, this is likely to be the best if the three movies about The Steve.

So are they going to have to die now? It seemed like a low-budget straight documentary, not a parody.

They should have released this yesterday for April Fools. Would have been perfect.
